PHOENIX — Fried foods and amusement fair rides are now officially back on the calendar for fall 2022 in Phoenix.
The Arizona State Fair will open a week earlier than in past years, beginning on Sept. 23 and running until Oct. 30.
Fairgoers will get the chance to enjoy a variety of entertainment including concerts, monster truck shows, rodeo events and figure-eight racing.
The 2021 state fair set a record turnout of nearly 1.6 million visitors, one year removed from the limited 2020 drive-thru event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
More entertainment and food options will be announced in the months leading up to the event.
Tickets are now available for purchase on the fair's website.
